Section 4.2.1 says:

In the last paragraph on page 11 says:

      identifier contains a name that the CA/RA can associate with the
      requestor.  This will generally be either the DN of a certificate
      or a text token passed and known to both the requestor and the
      CA/RA.  ...

It should say:

identifier contains a name that the CA/RA can associate with the requestor.
This will generally be either a portion of either a subject name or subject
alternative name (either from an existing certificate or from the
certificate request) or a text token passed and known to both the requestor
and the CA/RA.  

Notes:

The location of the DN material will vary based on the question of whether
this is an archive operator or a POP operation.
